Yesterday we caught [and rescued] the other two kittens. I’ll try to go into detail on tomorrow’s post. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lately I have taken an interest in blogs by life coaches/psychologists/photographers/etc. They make me think, and I like that. ๐Ÿ˜€ Here are a few:

That’s all for today. ๐Ÿ™‚

This is a really good idea, I can never think of things to write in my blogs haha, I always try lists but I can never think of what lists to actually write!

My problem is rather the opposite. I come up with so many things to write about that I have 30 pending posts and 10 drafts. I have to decide what to write and post each day. ๐Ÿ˜› Even so, that is quite a useful list.

Oooh! Thats a great way to overcome the writers block :D! !! If I have a writier`s block, I just refer to my 30 day challenge list :P!

A 4×4 class schedule is …. 2 semesters worth of 8 classes per semester. :O! So its 16. But you don`t tkae 8 classes all in one day. You take 4 on one, and 4 on the next. And so on. :P!

I think I have sent you the impress plugin… But my e-mail client got messed up and probably sent you duplicates

This is a great assignment. It could not only be the basis for finding more to write about, but could bring us closer to our passions. I see that as a win-win.

Thank you for including a link to my blog post. I truly appreciate it. ๐Ÿ™‚
